Freedom High School Joins with FreedomBands.com to Raise Money to support American Troops
(PRWEB) April 20, 2005
The aptly named Freedom High SchoolÂs Student Government Association has teamed up with Freedombands.com maker of the colorful Freedom Bands. With the support of this Orlando High School, Freedombands.com hopes to jumpstart their drive to $ 25 million for the troops.
The idea behind Freedom Bands came from a family in Utah. Basing their product on the wildly successful Lance Armstrong ÂLive StrongÂ bands, they created Freedom Bands that show support for the US military. Kib and Lisa Jensen and their four children started the foundation in the home with a goal of raising $ 25 million to send to the soldiers and their families. TheyÂre original red band has now been joined by five other colors and patterns. With the help of schools like Freedom High, they are stepping up sales on their new Freedom Bands.
Freedom Bands inscribed with ÂLife Liberty FreedomÂ are now available in red, brand-new white, blue, swirl, camouflage and glow-in the dark. The more prominent black lettering of these new Freedom Bands allows wearers to clearly show their support for our American troops.
The proceeds from the sale of Freedom Bands is used 100% to support the US troops and their families back home, but they also give all Americans a reminder of the daily sacrifice out soldiers make and allow the wearer to show a visible sign of their support.
ÂIt does not matter what party you belong to. These bands are to support those who fight for our country and say we are proud to be American,Â says Lisa Jensen.
Freedom High is only the latest in the list of high schools, radio and television stations , as well as the troops themselves, who have generously bought and distributed the Freedom Bands, leading to the $ 30,000 that has been raised and donated to charities and organizations devoted to helping soldiers and their families. FreedomBand donations have already been made to the American Red Cross, USA Cares, Armed Forces Children’s Education Fund, the Fisher House Foundation and A Million Thanks.
